Camden Mom-and-Pop Hardware Retailer Takes on Zika

Launches Online Rollout of Revolutionary FlexScreen -- World's First Flexible Window Screen That Expands to Fit Almost Any Window, Anywhere

CDC Advises Using Window Screens to Protect Homes from Mosquitoes

Camden-based hardware company SWISCO is launching international sales of FlexScreen as the official online retailer of the revolutionary new window screen that flexes to install easier than anything on the market and fit almost anywhere on the planet.

FlexScreen's sides can bend inward, allowing it to spring right into existing screen tracks, without extra hardware. And FlexScreen is easily custom ordered online to the exact size needed, creating a snug mosquito barrier.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends "staying in places with air conditioning and window and door screens to keep mosquitoes outside when in areas with Zika and other diseases spread by mosquitoes." Homeowner interest in replacing old, damaged, or missing window screens is increasing.

"We believe FlexScreen adds to the fight against the spread of Zika Virus Disease by allowing consumers around the world to easily purchase and install a great-fitting window screen," said SWISCO Operating Manager Paul Pallas. "The arrival of the FlexScreen technology is timely because consumers are looking beyond merely using insect repellent outdoors, and focusing on controlling mosquitoes indoors."

Now in its third generation of family ownership, SWISCO began as "Storm Window Service Company" in the early 1960s, and is now considered by many to be the ultimate online source for home repair replacement hardware. The company was included in last year's national Inner City 100 List.

SWISCO's retail customers include homeowners, landlords, and contractors, along with a fast-growing B2B segment. All are offered the same quality and service online as one would expect from a small mom-and-pop hardware store. All orders placed on are filled and shipped from their warehouse at 1226 S. 2nd St. in Camden, N.J.
